    Thank you very much for your speedy and generous reply; this unsophisticated peasant is very grateful. I'm sure a largish print would look handsome and compelling – your concept is proven admirably, congratulations. ............. Chris

    M11 Images

    Hello – I couldn't remember where I'd seen this excellent picture and I've scoured the forum to return to it. The picture has been bugging me. I have no sense of a 15mm field of view, but I make the [safe?] assumption that a diverging and a converging image are corrected and joined. I have...

    IQ4 Achromatic - Nighttime Filter Comparison (IR; UV+IR cut)

    Peter, Being curious about what others had to say about UV/IR-cut filters I strayed into this thread, and then to your website to see if I would recognise a filtration signature. I wasn't prepared for how enjoyable your work is and left hungry for more. Among others, Grand Staircase Escalante...

    X2D + new lenses: first impressions

    Thank you for your feedback it is appreciated and helpful. I've been photographing seriously since the early seventies and have known many adjustments to my working methods so I can do it again of course; but I thrived on working with the live histogram in my Leica, working without will be a...

    X2D + new lenses: first impressions

    Hi – My first post in this particular forum, and it's a tired one from wasting my time for hour upon hour and surviving rehashed Hasselblad press releases presented as 'articles,' and numerous uninformative videos in the hell-hole of Youtub. Today I finally unearthed information that the format...

    SL2 v SL2s v M10

    Hi ––– Like others here I could make pictures with bigger cameras and did so for decades, but ended up remaining with the M system for two reasons. It's the only digital platform which, by rangefinder focusing, allows me to manually focus at my chosen working aperture [i.e. stopped down], and...

    Fun With Sony Cameras

    Me too, alas I can't fulfil the ambition. Bill Brandt turned me on to photography : http://www.britishphotography.org/news/2252/11592/bill-brandt-new-acquisitions-from-moma-new-york-gulls-nest-on-mid-summer-night-isle-of-skye-1947--?r=news/2252/bill-brandt-new-acquisitions-from-moma-new-york...

    You beat me to it. I came to post something very similar. Be well, and be back soon Barry; I'm missing your pictures of Cornwall. ............ Chris

    Ian – the 'ignored' in question became so before his ordination as a Moderator. Maybe I got in early? And no; it wasn't Jaap. ........... Chris

    I agree with these clipped opinions, and it's no coincidence that I'm posting this here rather than LUF. I used to post there but realised it wasn't fun when I was libelled at LUF by a self appointed Cardinal of the Faith [after one mildly 'heretical' post perceived as too critical and...

    Fun With Sony Cameras

    Barry – Thank you; at least my fallibility is more intact than my credibility. Right river of course, [I'd recognise that water anywhere] though wrong bridge. My error can float downstream like a Pooh-stick to blush it's passage under Respryn bridge. Thanks for your added pics; Respryn always...

    Barry – River Fowey from the first bridge past Golitha in Draynes Valley? I may be overestimating my powers after once successfully scoring a hit with 'Name that Cornish Harbour Wall' Even so; I hope to be on a winning streak...... ........... Chris

    Getting tired of Diglloyd

    I'd like to say something positive about Lloyd. Whilst he seems to have abandoned Leica he did get an M10 in his hands and gave it a brief review. I have read many M10 reviews, and on-line threads about it's glory. He is the only reviewer I have read who spotted immediately that if you want to...

    Fun With Sony Cameras

    Barry – Thanks, my wobbly limb and I are purring with smugness, and as I never flick Flickr it seems my psychic reaching has greater power than I hoped. It's also good news as I'm planning a rail day-return to Newlyn [it's a long, long haul day] and I'm delighted there's some newish old rope to...

    Barry – that's more like it; you've brought me back to the game of guessing which Cornish harbour wall you've photographed. I'll go out on a wobbly limb here and say : I name that Cornish harbour wall as Newlyn!............ [applause applause applause?]. .............. Chris

    The Leica Q2

    Or even better [for me] a 28mm to 40mm impeccable zoom of whatever maximum f stop the lens design lands at to utilise the whole sensor at both ends of the range. That would be all my working range in one camera. However, and like even the sprighliest member here; I don't have enough years left...

    Fun With Sony Cameras

    Oh Barry, I have such strong memories of Respryn woods. When I was young I'd go there with my father, particularly in early Spring when the whole meadow was a yellow blaze of wild daffodils. Over the years I've often wondered how badly the daffodil carpet has been decimated by vandal-picking. If...

    Well thanks for that; I'm always thinking of Polperro, and yes I'd love to have been there today too. I know it as a busy fishing village, but now it's more of a second home village with an absence of children or indigenous Cornish. Oskar Kokoshka painted Polperro many times, there's a...
